• INFORM Risk Index: Access to health care

    Understanding why and where humanitarian disasters are likely to occur is a fundamental step in saving lives and promoting sustainable development. Preparing the health workforce to work towards the attainment of a country's health objectives represents one of the most important challenges for its health system. As part of the coping capacity dimension of the INFORM Risk Index (global risk assessment for humanitarian crises and disasters) this layer shows an index for healthcare access. It captures the health system performance via indicators such as maternal mortality, the density of physicians and the overall system strength to deliver infant vaccination. The risk score ranges from 0-10, where 10 is the highest risk.
